Augmented Experiences: Using Augmented Reality for Tours, Escape Rooms, and Exhibits in the Library.
With recent advancements by Apple and Google, augmented reality (AR) is becoming increasingly accessible to the general public. The BYU library has been experimenting with AR as a tool for creating engaging experiences in library tours, escape rooms, and exhibits. We’ll discuss what we’ve learned along the way and look at a variety of tools available to start implementing AR in your library.

Collection evaluation, or weeding, is about as popular as, well, real weeding. Unfortunately there isn’t a Library Roundup®-type technology that will make the job easy. BYU science librarians completed a major print collection evaluation project and will discuss essential library-wide collaborations, deselection criteria, innovative project management tools, a novel patron feedback process, and finally, lessons learned.
